Primal pyromancy taught by Quelana, daughter of the Witch of Izalith. Sweeps foes with a fire whip.

The caster manipulates the flames at will, making this an extremely difficult spell to use.

Pyromancy is at once the knowledge of controlling flame, and the knowledge that control is impossible.

Notes

  • Each projectile has a small knockback effect and it fires 15-20ish per cast. This can be good for slowing or breaking the block of smaller things.
  • Very efficient damage:focus ratio. In testing, I am getting 89 damage per 2 focus projectile vs chaos orb's 694(without lava).
  • Fairly wide spread when cast standing still which can make, however shots can be grouped by "aiming" mid cast. (ie, use move stick/wasd to move character while casting)

      God, I miss the Fire Whip from DS2. Do any of you remember how good it was? Stupidly wide angles that covered nearly both sides, if you had two pyro gloves, very respectable damage, and instant full range when casted. The only thing that hindered it was its casting speed, which wasn't too slow if you had the spell speed maxed. THIS Fire Whip however, while does the most damage of all pyromancies (to my knowledge), simply does not have the range covering speed nor angles to properly deal with the quickness of players. Sometimes it's not fast enough for PvE! Even if you manage to cast it, I have had scenarios that ended in only one tick of the fire hitting and me losing the trade heavily.

      An absolutely disheartening spell for pyromancers that I very quickly replaced with Profaned Flame for its usefulness in ganking scenarios.

        Since patch 1.05, or maybe it's the regulation which did it, the Fire Whip is now useless in PVP (and always was in PVE), because you are stuck in the animation once the flames come out of your hand, meaning that if you didn't immediately stagger your opponent, he has plenty of time to lazy walk around you and backstab you.

          You can find the Quelana pyromancy tome near the Old Demon king Antechamber bonfire (underneath the smouldering lake, which in turn lies underneath the High king fight in the Cartharus catacombs)

            So this may be a dumb question but.... Why does it say the fp cost is 2 if it's clearly more than 2 to cast?
